A Budget more fit for gags than first-time buyers?

Posted: November 23, 2017 in News

There was plenty of policy to chew over in the Chancellor’s Budget.

The flagship move was the stamp duty changes- abolishing the tax for first-time buyers purchasing properties up to £300,000 and in high-priced areas on the first £300,000 of houses worth up to £500,000 – but this has already raised fears of a rise in house prices.

Policy and that whole deficit issue aside, Hammond’s speech was probably more memorable for the gags.

One YouTube user has put together a handy video of the best jokes.
